Punky Brewster has made its successful return to television courtesy of Peacock’s new revival, with Soleil Moon Frye and Cherie Johnson reprising their beloved roles from the original series. In addition to the nostalgia, there are several new additions to the mix, including Izzy, who is a lot like Punky was when she first met Henry all those years ago.
Izzy (played by Quinn Copeland) also happens to be a huge fan of WWE, and later in the season, she gets to meet two of her favorites in Charlotte Flair and Alexa Bliss. ComicBook.com recently had the chance to speak with Flair all about it, starting with how it all came together.
“Well, I think that Izzy, actually, the character in the show is a wrestling fan and I believe she actually really liked myself and Alexa Bliss and it was a perfect fit. I was honored to be a part of it. It was that simple,” Flair said.
“And I mean, it’s always nice to hear when there’s another show, for example, with Peacock, that’s a fan of our show and we’re a fan of theirs and wanting to do the crossover, like with Psych and USA, I was excited.”
